Modern Comfort


Step into a refreshing atmosphere, created to help families enjoy a rejuvenating, spa-like dental experience.

We weren’t interested in opening an ordinary dental practice. We want to go beyond teeth and take care of you. By creating a fun, innovative and inviting atmosphere, our goal is to improve your oral health and overall well-being. We want to provide an escape from everyday stresses with an environment that will leave you rejuvenated to take on life’s challenges.

East Coast
West Coast

Dr. Patel brings a deep devotion to family and a love for healthcare science from his roots in New England. Dr. Cua exudes a warm, sunny Los Angeles vibe mixed with a little Disney excellence. East coast meets west coast in the heart of Austin, Texas to create an innovative and inviting patient experience. From snow to beaches, both doctors bring a refreshing energy to serving the people of Austin.

During her undergraduate career, Dr. Cua studied microbiology in Santiago, Chile and discovered a passion for meeting and serving people from different cultures around the world. Her memorable time as a Disneyland cast member taught her the life-changing impact of creating a magical experience for those she serves. Her life experiences made her realize the difference she can make as a dentist for families in the Austin area. Dr. Cua completed her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. Despite her California roots, she has fallen in love with the people, food, and culture of the great state of Texas.

Not Your Ordinary Dental Practice

We know you have a real life with real struggles and real stories. We listen. We care. We want to know you better so we can serve you best.

We Care

For some, a trip to the dentist is stressful. Our mission is to change the way you experience dental care. We like to pamper our patients a bit, helping you feel like you are our special guest. With our spa-like environment and our refreshing atmosphere, we think you may not want to leave.

We Pamper

Great dental care is not one-size-fits-all. Every smile is unique and every treatment requires a personalized, innovative, and creative approach. From general dental care to cosmetic solutions, you can expect customized solutions to create a beautifully healthy smile.
